Tiki of the Month

Birthday Tiki for 2024

Birthday Tiki for 2024

Burnsland
The Birthday Tiki has come around once again, because someone has a birthday. Hint: it is me. And you probably won’t be able to guess which birthday this is. Or maybe you can. I am a little jealous of the Birthday Tiki, because he is in my favorite place, which is a nice, warm beach. Meanwhile, I am back here at home, although the weather forecast does look to be relatively pleasant, which is a good thing after all the rain we have had this month and the snow from last month.
2023 Christmas Tree No. 3 and Tiki of the Month

2023 Christmas Tree No. 3 and Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
A Tiki Christmas tree is the latest in two of our series here, the 2023 Christmas trees and the Tiki of the Month. Time was running out, and I could not decide which series I wanted to work on, the Christmas trees or the Tikis. And then I thought, “Why not combine them into one?” After all, a Tiki Christmas tree would be rather unique, which was my goal for the Christmas trees to begin with.
Falling Leaves Tiki of the Month

Falling Leaves Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
The Tiki of the Month for November has lots of falling leaves to deal with, although all of those leaves are a problem of his own making. Even with all of those leaves to rake up, this month’s Tiki still looks happy about it all. Maybe that is because he knows he has another Tiki to help him with this chore. When thinking about what to do for the Tiki of the Month for November, I realized that last year’s November Tiki was all about Thanksgiving.
October Tiki of the Month for Halloween

October Tiki of the Month for Halloween

The October Tiki of the Month is ready for Halloween, complete with his mask. Does a mask like that really hide his identity? Probably not. But he is happy to take his place in the Tiki of the Month lineup. Maybe next year we should work on getting him a better costume. Something that hides his identity more, perhaps? Are Halloween costumes even supposed to hide your identity? Probably not, but that’s okay.
September Tiki of the Month

The September Tiki of the Month has lots of leaves to rake, since the fall season (or autumn, if you prefer) is upon us. And no matter how many leaves you rake, there will still be more to rake later on. Actually, here in Tennessee, most everything is still green. A few trees are starting to lose their leaves, and I am sure that the other trees will start to turn in the next few weeks.
August Tiki of the Month

The August Tiki of the Month looks a bit different than some of the recent tikis of the month, but that is okay, because he does not mind being different. While some of the past tikis have been happy and fun, this one looks a bit more serious. He has a different purpose, as he is left to guard the tiki home while the others are out having fun. So now I am interested in knowing what this tiki home looks like.
Surf Tiki of the Summer Months

Surf Tiki of the Summer Months

Burnsland
A surfing tiki is the latest Tiki of the Month. But of which month? As you may remember, the May Tiki was posing with his board. And now this guy is actually out catching waves. But close observers may note that these are actually two different tikis. However, they must be related, due to the strong family resemblance. And congratulations to the tiki for being out there and happily doing what he loves to do.
May Tiki of the Month

May Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
The Tiki of the Month for May is ready to hit the waves with his super-cool surfboard. He is just waiting for the right surf conditions to head out and hang ten. Except that he does not have ten to hang on with. Just a minor technicality, however. As spring gets closer to summer, I begin to think more and more about the beach. So naturally, the Tiki of the Month for May reflects that.
April Tiki of the Month

April Tiki of the Month

Burnsland
The Tiki of the Month for April does not mind a few April showers as long as he has his umbrella handy. He does not let a little rain get him down! If you are new around here, the Tiki of the Month project started at the original Burnsland site and has continued here at Art by Burnsland. Be sure to check them all out! Don’t Blame the Rain We have had quite a bit of rain here in our area this April.
March Tiki of the Month

March Tiki of the Month

Happy Spring Tiki! The Tiki of the Month for March is happy that spring has arrived! This continues the Tiki of the Month series from the original Burnsland website at this new Art by Burnsland site. It appears that the winter weather may finally be behind us, at least for the most part. So this Tiki is celebrating with his 3-leaf clover. He was apparently not lucky enough to find a 4-leaf clover.
